1251 - Client doens't support server protocol

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm having a great deal of trouble setting up a PHP-MySQL testing environment on my home PC. I have installed the IIS files needed, i have installed PHP and MySQL and am working with dreamweaver... the problem occurs when i come to make a connection to the database.

 

When i type in my details and hit the "select.." button it brings back the error message:

 

"1251 Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client"

 

which i can't understand because i only downloaded the MySQL thing today?

 

Can anyone shed a little light on my predicament? i'd be very greatful if someone could point out the errors in my ways.

 

Cheers,

Paulo

You have probably installed the latest mysql administrator from mysql. Dreamweaver mx 2004 has issues with you using a password to connect to your mysql database. try creating an account without a password and using that instead. this should not be a security risk as long as php, mysql and dreamweaver are in the same domain or machine.

Turn on old password support using MySQL Administrator (Startup Variables -> Security -> Use old passwords), restart the server *then* reset the passwords on problem accounts. This will allow you to use passwords and dreamweaver.
